The first release candidate of FPC 2.2.2 has been released. The Lazarus team is waiting for the release of FPC 2.2.2, because it needs it for the Unicode support for the win32 widget set. We intend to release Lazarus 0.9.26 soon after FPC 2.2.2 has been released.
People who want to test this release candidate with Lazarus, can download a Lazarus snapshot. The last week have replaced all fpc 2.2.0 based snapshots with fpc 2.2.2rc1 based snapshots.
Don't wait too long with testing, because 30 June will start the code freeze in preparation of the RC2. Hopefully this is the final release candidate for FPC 2.2.2, so we can have a FPC release before the end of July. Another release candidate will delay the release about a month. So test well, and report any regressions before the end of June.
